Square Enix opened their E3 press conference with some gameplay for Shadow of the Tomb Raider. We’ve seen some trailers over the past few days, but this was our first in depth look of how the game plays.

Lara Croft will have to blend in with the jungle to survive against Trinity. She’s able to do a lot of cool things, like trick the guards into shooting each other, perform aerial assassinations, stealth her way through the plant life, hang enemies with her rope arrow, throw lit gas cans to cause explosions, and much more.

Square Enix also showed what will be the biggest hub city in the Tomb Raider franchise. There will be full underwater exploration, grappling, wall running, and tons of other ways to get around the jungle.

Join Lara Croft on her journey to stop a Mayan apocalypse on September 14th, 2018. You can check out the gameplay in the video above!

Our Verdict


Adam Sherrill
Writing is half of my life. Video games make up the other half. I decided to put these two hobbies together and join Gamnesia back in 2015. I spend most of my time working at a retail store and paying off my student debt. When I'm not getting stressed about the thousands of dollars I owe my loan providers, I play tons of video games (which just puts me into more debt). I'm also currently writing a novel in what little spare time I have. It's a story I've been wanting to write for a while, but I don't want to talk about it until I have most of it completed. Any Gamnesia-related inquiries may be sent to [email protected] Feel free to follow my personal Twitter if you want (@Pindlo). I mostly just retweet things.
